BALTIMORE CFL TEAM CLOSE TO PICKING A NICKNAME
Published December 2, 1994
Baltimore CFL franchise owner Jim Speros said yesterday that he will select a name for the franchise once he has received NFL approval. The three finalists are the "Stallions," the "CFLs" and a third, unnamed write-in vote. Speros would not say what the name was because he has not yet registered for trademark rights to the name. Speros said he expects to choose the winner no later than December 16. The NFL holds the trademark rights to "Stallions," a name St. Louis had planned to use had it been selected for NFL expansion (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 12/2).
